The moisture underneath concrete can sometimes cause the soil to shift and compact, causing the concrete above to shift and become out of place. Sometimes tree roots can cause concrete to not be level as the roots push up on to the slab. Uneven concrete can become a hazard if not attended to. People walking over it may trip, as the concrete has become uneven with the area around it. The structure near the slab may also be threatened depending on the location and proximity of the uneven concrete. Also, cracked or shifted concrete just doesn’t look good.
Leveling concrete attempts to level an uneven concrete surface by altering the foundation that the concrete slab sits upon. This can be done a few ways, Mud-Jacking and Polyurethane both try to fix altered concrete by filling in the cracks and filling in the gaps underneath the concrete to keep it level. Both options drill holes beneath the concrete and fill the area beneath with a very durable substance that will be able to withstand any weight that might be one it. These options are not temporary fixes, they are long lasting and will leave you with a quality finish. Furthermore, these options are much quicker and cheaper than ripping out the concrete and then re-pouring new concrete into the area. These concrete leveling techniques have been employed by small businesses and private homes and has been used to fix factories, warehouses, airports, highways, and other infrastructure.
